Microids and Pendulo Studios have unveiled narrative game Alfred Hitchcock – Vertigo, which is described as a “new kind of psychological thriller” coming to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox One at the end of 2021.
Taking the form of a “narrative and adventure game,” it obviously takes inspiration from the 1958 Alfred Hitchcock movie of the same name, but offers an “exclusive, original story about obsession, memory, manipulation and madness,” featuring several timelines and the ability to investigate through the vision of three characters.
You can check out the initial teaser trailer above, and here’s a description of the story:
“Writer Ed Miller came out unscathed from his car crash down into Brody Canyon, California. Even though no one was found inside the car wreckage, Ed insists that he was traveling with his wife and daughter. Traumatized by this event, he begins to suffer from severe vertigo. As he starts therapy, he will try to uncover what really happened on that tragic day.”
